America’s number one cover girl during World War II, the lovely Jinx Falkenburg graced seemingly every publication in that tumultuous period.  Athletic and the portrait of health, Jinx kept in pin-up girl shape by playing tennis.  The sport came natural to her, for her brother was a tennis champion and was a postwar star in the sport.  Jinx had a trademark: she would often position flowers behind her ears.  Whether she was donned in bathing suits, evening gowns or sarongs, Miss Falkenburg was dynamite.
